Firstly a big thank you to all who have attending the Safeguarding Training over the last two months. It has been a pleasure to meet you all and to undergo this journey with you. I have also appreciated all your feedback. This feedback will continue to be instrumental in looking at our training and working out what can be improved and how.
While I recognise that some of our processes are not yet in place, one which is is the complaints process to the Ministry Standards. A link to their website is set out below. This website covers who you can make a complaint about to the Ministry Standards and also covers off how to make a complaint. https://ministrystandards.org/en-nz. All Parishes will also have posters outlining how to make these complaints.
For any other matters of concern or need for advice, please do not hesitate to contact me:

Some of the information relating to Safeguarding is held on Te Puna/Waiapu’s Intranet for those of you who have access to this. Within there is the:
Safeguarding Training Manual
I am really looking forward to visiting many more parishes in the new year and sharing the information on safeguarding that we have put together.
I hope you all have an wonderful Christmas and a fabulous New Year.
